Abstract

The quantum Ising chain with p equidistant defects is studied. The exact form of the Hamiltonian is found for an infinite number of sites. Using conformal invariance, generalised corner exponents are computed and found to depend continuously on the defect strengths. Realisations of extended conformal algebras in the Hamiltonian spectrum are obtained.
